Contents of this chapter
This chapter describes the parameter and custom parameter windows.
Parameter window
With Drive composer entry the parameter window is always opened when you make
connection to a drive. With Drive composer pro the parameter window is opened by
clicking on the selected drive in the drive list and selecting Parameters.
The parameter window view displays parameter groups, parameters and their values for
the associated drive or a file. There can be several parameter windows in the working
area. The headline of each parameter window shows which drive it belongs to.
Following are the command icons available in the parameter window.
Icon
Description
Expands/collapses parameter groups. When parameter groups are
expanded, all parameter values are read once from the drive.
Saves parameters to a file. Saves visible parameters to a file. File
extension is dcparams(bak).
Enables you to search parameter lists with a keyword. Search is
activated/deactivated by clicking the Filter check box. When the Filter
check box is unchecked all parameters are seen.
Note: If parameter groups have not been expanded, the first search takes
about 30…60 seconds.
Allows you to select/deselect columns to be seen in a parameter window.
60 Parameter window
Icon
Description
Parameters are updated only when a group is opened. With the Enable
updating function it is possible to set all open and visible groups to be
updated automatically. Parameters that have been set to be updated
automatically have a yellow background.
Allows you to download parameters from a file to a drive. With a custom
parameter window allows downloading offline values to a drive.
Enables you to change the window target, which is useful if you have
Drive composer pro and you have to check certain parameters of another
drive. Included only in custom parameter windows.
Provides you with a list of all user-changed parameters if you click the
check box. These parameters have an orange background.
Allows you to add or remove one parameter or signal or several
parameters or signals to/from a custom parameter window.
Figure 52. Parameter window
Parameter window 61
The parameter window contains different types of parameters. Some of these types are
identified by colors or bold fonts as shown in the table below:
Icon/Example
Explanation
Regular
Normal parameters
1.1 Motor speed
Signals (bold, magenta)
Bit names of a parameter can be seen by double-clicking on
the parameter (bold). New window opens.
P2.1.1
Parameter value is set from another parameter, for example,
parameter group 2, index 1, bit 1.
P2.1.2-
Parameter value is an inverted bit of another parameter,
group 2, index 1, bit 2.
User has changed the value of a parameter (shown with an
orange background).
The most common type is the regular parameter. Parameters are normally readable and
writable. However, when the drive is running, some parameters may be write-protected.
Parameter names, values, units, default values and different user sets are shown in the
parameter window. The number of user sets depends on the drive type.
The value of a parameter is read only once. If you want to update this value, right-click and
select Refresh the parameter. You can set all visible parameters to update automatically
by clicking the Enable updating button.
The values of signals cannot be modified. If signals are modified, you will get an error
prompt for every signal. Signals are updated cyclically in the parameter window.
Parameter signals are also updated frequently, but their values can be modified.
Navigating parameters and groups
Parameter values are updated if they are modified. A parameter value can be modified by
double-clicking the parameter or by pressing Enter on a highlighted parameter. To update
parameter group values, right-click the group name and select Refresh group
parameters.
In special cases, hidden parameters and groups become available by modifying some
parameter values, the View –> Refresh command updates the whole parameter table. An
example for such a group is group 51 FBA A Settings: When the adapter module has been
enabled in group 50, the parameter names can be seen by selecting View –> Refresh.
Note: The parameter window must be closed before refreshing and opened again after
refreshing.
There are five alternative formats in which parameters are shown: default, binary,
hexadecimal, integer and float format. To change the format of a parameter, right-click and
select either Use default format, Use binary format, Use hexadecimal format, Use
integer format or Use float format.
You can change the widths of the columns by dragging the vertical lines between the
column headers.
62 Parameter window
Double-click the value field box to see the bit names of certain binary parameters. For
example, see the below parameter 10.1 DI status.
Figure 53. Bit names for a parameter
To reset a parameter, right-click it and select Reset to default.
Parameter values are read once when a group is opened. Independent parameters from
different groups can be set to the Auto-update mode by right-clicking them and selecting
Add to auto-update. The parameters that are updated automatically are seen with a
yellow background as shown in the following figure.
Note: Signals are automatically updated cyclically
Parameter window 63
Figure 54. Parameters with a yellow background
Parameters or signals can be sent to the monitor window by right-clicking them and
selecting Send to monitor. Parameters can be copied to a custom parameter window by
right-clicking them and selecting Copy. In addition, you can drag and drop parameters to a
custom parameter window.
64 Parameter window
Pointer parameters
One special type of a parameter is a pointer parameter. The value of a pointer parameter
is read from the parameter it points to. Depending on the pointer parameter, value or bit
pointer, its target can be another parameter or one of its bits. Some pointer parameters
can be assigned Active (false) or Inactive (true).
In most cases, common settings are offered as a selection list. In those cases where the
selection list does not offer the correct pointer, pointing can be done by selecting Other…
from a selection list.
Figure 55. Constant value for a pointer parameter
Select a parameter from the list for a value pointer and then its bit from 0 to 31 for a bit
pointer.
You can also enter a value manually by selecting the Edit manually check box. The value
must follow form P.#.#.#, where the first # is the parameter group number, the second # is
the parameter number and the third # is the bit number without leading zeros (for example
P.2.1.2).
Active (false) or Inactive (true) are the constant values that can be entered manually.
Parameter window 65
A bit pointer value can also be inverted by selecting the Invert value check box.
Figure 56. Inverting a bit pointer value
The inverted bit pointer value is shown with the minus sign at the end of the parameter.
Figure 57. Inverted bit pointer value with the minus sign
66 Parameter window
 Setting fieldbus data in/out parameters
Process data transferred to and from the drive/PLC is set with parameter groups 52 and
53. With an ACS880 drive it is possible to select the data type for each selected
parameter/signal in these group.
1. Double-click FBA data in/out parameter and select Other.
Figure 58. Selecting the data type
Parameter window 67
2. Select the format in which the value is handled:16-bit, 32-bit or floating point format.
Figure 59. Selecting the format
In the parameter window the selections are shown inside brackets: [16], [32] or [F].
Figure 60. Formats shown inside brackets in the parameter window
Note: The floating point or 32-bit value reserves 2 slots in the configuration. Consequently,
if you try to select a value for parameter 52.04 as in the figure above, you get a Parwrite
failed error message. The scalings of parameters/signals are found in ACS880 primary
control program firmware manual (AUA0000085967 [English]).
Note: You should always check the parameter mapping from the manual of the used
fieldbus protocol. Example, FENA-01/-11/-21 Ethernet adapter module user's manual
(3AUA0000093568 [English]) or FPBA-01 PROFIBUS DP adapter module user's manual
(3AFE68573271 [English]).
68 Parameter window
Binary parameters
Binary parameters have a special meaning for each of their bits. These parameters are
modified in a special Set binary parameter dialog. The value can be modified numerically
in binary, hexadecimal or decimal format.
You can modify the values in the bit by double-clicking the value field for each bit. Some
bits are greyed out and disable to edit.
Another way to modify a bit is to type the bit value directly to the New value [bin] / [hex] /
[dec] field.
Signal values, which are in binary format, can be viewed in a similar dialog.
Figure 61. Binary parameter editor
Parameter window 69
Search for groups and parameters
You can search the names of parameters and groups inside the parameter window. The
search result is a list of all parameters matching the search text criteria. For example, all
torque-related parameters can be found by entering search criteria “torque” in the Enter
keyword field and clicking the Filter check box. To uncheck the Filter box, click it again.
Figure 62. Search example
Note: The first search takes about 30…60 seconds, because Drive composer goes
through the whole parameter structure. The next searches are fast. All searches are in
memory of the PC as long as Drive composer is on.
70 Parameter window
Custom parameter window
In Drive composer it is possible to customize parameter windows. This means that
parameters/signals can be dragged and dropped or copied from the main parameter
window or from other custom parameter windows. You can rename custom parameter
windows.
For example, you can collect all the typical parameters used in a quick start-up to one
window. You can create separate windows for separate functions (for example, references,
limits, ACS880 I/O). Custom parameter windows open automatically when a connection to
a drive is made because they are saved with the workplace. Custom parameter windows
can also be opened separately.
Parameter values can be changed in custom parameter windows. Custom parameter
windows can be used both in tabbed and floating windows environments.
Separate custom parameter windows can be also saved to a file by selecting Save
parameters to file. The changed values in the Offline value column are saved as well.
Therefore the contents of a custom parameter window can be used for the
parameterization of another drive. You can send the saved custom parameter windows to
other users and they can open them with their Drive composer to see parameters that you
want them to check or download to a drive.
Note: When a custom parameter window is saved, the actual drive values of the Value
column are copied to the Offline value column. During loading the values in the Offline
value column are shown in comparison with the current actual values. When you open the
file containing the saved custom parameter window you can copy the values of the Offline
value column to another drive by clicking the Download to device button.
Figure 63. Download to device button
In a network of drives, you can create a custom parameter window including
parameters/signals selected from different drives. To have a view where all parameters are
from one drive, click the Change drive button and select the drive.
To see the value of a parameter/signal used in another drive, right-click the
parameter/signal and select Change drive.

6. If you get a message indicating that the upload of parameter values is going on, click
OK.
At the end of the restore operation you get a report of the operation.
7. Check the parameters that have failed during the restore operation.
Note: If you use Drive composer entry you cannot modify parameter files in the offline
mode. With Drive composer pro parameter values can be modified offline.
Drive composer displays the open parameter file in a tree structure.
Figure 74. Parameter file in a drive tree
Note: Drive composer does not check the drive type and software version when copying
parameters from a custom parameter window or a parameter file to a drive. Only visible
parameters and ID run results are copied to a drive when the download command is used.
Use the backup/restore operation, for example, for the application program (Control
Builder Plus program), panel home view configurations and different user settings. With
the restore function you can also define how different parts are handled during the restore
operation, for example, ID run results can be restored or cleared during the restore
operation.
Note: The backup/restore function is available only with Drive composer pro.
76 Parameter window
 Comparing drive data (pro)
Note: Both versions of Drive composer have Not at default function for listing userchanged parameters. The Compare drive data function compares parameter values.
With Drive composer pro you can compare parameters between

Workspace handling
Contents of this chapter
This chapter describes the workspace functionality.
Overview
Workspace consists of the user interface status, such as parameter windows and custom
parameter windows.
The current workspace status can be saved to a file and restored later.
Note: You cannot save/restore the following status data:
• drive control status
•
If a drive has been controlled locally with Drive composer when the workspace is
saved, the workspace is saved without the change in the drive control status.
•
content, status and zooming levels of a stopped, paused or running monitor.
Note: Do not edit a workspace or graph file. The workspace (.dcxml) and monitored data
(.dcmon) files can contain binary data. For example, if the default workspace file is
corrupted, Drive composer does not open. If Drive composer does not open, delete your
default (.dcxml) file from the PC and open Drive composer again.

Contents this chapter
This chapter describes the use of control diagrams helping to understand the behavior of a
drive.
Control diagrams
Control diagrams provide a graphical presentation of, for example, the control chain of a
drive, the speed and torque control chains and the logic of Start and Stop functions. With
these diagrams it is possible to see parameter values related to certain functions.
Diagrams also illustrate the position of switches according to parameter values, which
helps to understand how the drive logic works. The values of parameters can be changed
via control diagrams. A control diagram consists of two levels. The top level shows an
overview of the diagrams and connections between them.
Note: Control Diagrams are drive-specific and they are not available for all drive types.
Note: When you connect a drive for the first time, it takes sometime to upload control
diagrams from the drive. If Control Diagrams are not found in the drive, Drive composer
asks to upload diagrams from the local source (PC).
